Leading benefits of security and surveillance solutions for your business

Security is one of the primary concerns for many business owners. Whether you operate a retail store and you want to deter shoplifters or you run a factory full of expensive equipment, it’s worth investing in security. With the use of security and surveillance systems, business owners now have more control than ever before. Let’s look at some of the ways security and surveillance systems could benefit your business.

Deterring theft

Simply by having CCTV cameras positioned openly around your premises, you can discourage would-be burglars or shoplifters. In many cases, crimes involving theft are often crimes of opportunity. For example, if someone in a retail shopping complex has their heart set on stealing something, they will look for easy targets. If your store has visible cameras and signs warning would-be thieves of their presence, they will likely move on to another store.

The same applies to after-hours break-ins to any type of business. With security alarms and cameras, thieves are likely to look elsewhere rather than take the risk of being caught on camera and identified.

Solving crimes

As a business owner, break-ins and other forms of theft can be extremely damaging. Insurance can be difficult to navigate too, because many insurance companies won’t pay out for theft unless a culprit is identified by the police. Well, with a high-quality security system you can give the local constabulary plenty of information to work with.

CCTV is always a good way to capture images of those who seek to harm your business. Plus, with modern systems, the pictures are a lot clearer than the old types of CCTV footage you see in the movies. With cameras on all access points, as well as the surrounding area, you’ve got a chance to capture offenders or their vehicles in HD-quality video, which is extremely useful for police investigating crimes.

Alarm monitoring

Most business owners don’t live at their business premises. So, when there are security concerns after-hours, such as an alarm being triggered, owners or designated persons need to visit the premises to ensure everything is ok. Not only is this inconvenient, but it can also be dangerous if there is still criminal activity occurring.

With a dedicated alarm monitoring service, business owners can free themselves of this hassle and risk. Security professionals can attend to your business and clear the area as safe. So, there’s no risk to you or your staff, and you can also rest easy knowing that your business is protected.

Lower insurance premiums

We touched on insurance before, and while it’s a necessary thing for businesses to have, it can be expensive and frustrating at times. But many commercial insurance policies offer a discount if there is adequate security installed. This is similar to the way your car insurance decreases if you keep the car in a garage rather than on the street. There’s less risk of something going wrong, so insurance companies can decrease your premiums.

So, if you’re looking to save a little money on ongoing insurance expenses, ask your insurer if the installation of security and surveillance solutions would result in a discount.

Control building access

If you operate a larger business premises, you need to know who is coming and going. This is often for the safety of staff and customers, but also to protect commercial operations where sensitive information may be present.

Working with a professional team like RCR, you can install building access systems to control who has access to certain parts of your business. This way, you can keep all sensitive information and activities behind closed doors, and access is very much on a needs basis.

The other benefit of advanced building access control systems is that you always have records. So, if there is ever concern about a breach or some other type of incident, you’ll always be able to see who had access to specific areas at any given time.
